About the event

Brokeneck Girls: The Murder Ballad Musical is a dark comedy based on the tradition of violence against women in folk music and the true crimes that inspired it. The social commentary delivers fast-paced laughter while addressing issues of class, race, gender,  and power. Revenge, redemption, free will and the conflict between good and evil unfold unexpectedly in a story focused on three women who bond over music and discover increasingly outrageous secrets.  Eventually the truth comes out- the desire to survive has driven all of them to become what they fear most. 

A lively score, performed by folk noir band Brokeneck Girls, features songs of murder and mayhem which unflinchingly tells a hidden history.  Join us for the thrilling new festival edition!
